    On Friday I checked Lowes/Aubechan/TV and a few others. ALL SOLD OUT.

    Lowes got them Thursday and sold out same day. Went to HD this morning for some work items...the computer said 13 tons, but the guy working the pellets said more like 7.

    Asked my foreman if he'd mind helping me out....about noon we swung by HD and got a ton $299.99 OMG!!! And they're Blazer pellets. Never heard of them before.

    I've never bought the same ton, everytime I get them they're different. The pellets are hard to find in my area...they're taking names right now for any shipments coming in.

    Also bought new rope for my stove.....what a nightmare that it. Getting the old rope off is no problem, getting the old glue of is.

    Anyway, got my ton today. I usually burn 2.5 tons a year so I'll wait for the demand to subside before I run out for my next ton.

    A wire wheel on a cordless drill or one of those 3-m brand abrasive spongy whell thingees on a drill does a number as well. Here's another tip, when you cut the new gasket/rope, put some of the glue on the ends and let it set up for a few to keep it from fraying while you work with it. KD

    Here's another tip for the future. Order your pellets from one of
    the companys I have linked to below.
    Place your order for 2 or 3 tons in late March or early April for best price.
    They will deliver to you and even with delivery charge you will pay
    less than $299 a ton. SSWP and pelletsales will deliver to you, I checked.
    Not sure about the other one but you have two viable options here for
    next spring.

    I drive by to and from work a new stove place (can't remember the name) in Pepperell, MA (north central MA) that has pellets stored outside I assume they are for sale.
